Craftsmanship, excellence, attention to detail and professionalism were among the characteristics judges cited in deciding the AGC’s Keystone Awards for 2012. In addition to historic structures, contractors were recognized for their work on educational facilities, hospital renovations and a rooftop bar.
Winners of this year’s Keystone Awards were announced during a gala dinner.
An award category was established this year for the “emerging contractor.” In addition, specialty contractors were recognized in a wide variety of categories.
A panel of five judges chose the winners from among lists of finalists announced in June.
